Launched in 2006, Anim’est has become Bucharest’s most beloved film festival and a recognized event on the international animation scene. The presentations, workshops, masterclasses and round tables provide the perfect opportunity to get in touch with the latest creations and make contacts.

The festival's program consists of six competitive sections: international feature film, international short film, Romanian film, student film, video, and the Minimest, or children’s film, category. In addition, the Mozaic section presents the hottest animation short and feature animations in international film festivals along with special sections & retrospectives dedicated to important animation studios, directors, film schools and festivals. The Anim'est Trophy is presented every year to one of the films competing in the short film competition.
